If you are one of those people who loves to mix chocolate candies into your popcorn at the theatre, then try this gourmet twist on your favorite sweet and salty popcorn treat by adding warm Nutella, white chocolate chips, or crumbled Ferraro Rocher candies to salted popcorn.

You can expand beyond the typical candy offering as well for equally delicious sweet and salty options by crumbling crisp brown sugar bacon into your popcorn mix.

Add rich bacon flavor straight into the popcorn by popping you kernels in bacon fat instead of the usual corn oil. Similarly, infuse healthy nutrients and a subtle coconut flavor by cooking your kernels in coconut oil.
